The Easter Sunday Guitar-Piano Duets. Live at the Record Plant Sausalito, CA; April 22, 1973. Very good KSAN FM broadcast.

Although blues-rock guitar great Mike Bloomfield had retreated from the spotlight in the early 1970s, he continued to play in low-key settings such as the performance here. Recorded at Sausalito’s Record Plant on April 22, 1973 for broadcast on KSAN-FM in San Francisco, the performance also feature longtime collaborator Mark Naftalin on piano.

  2. Mike Bloomfield was great and in his prime here . Apparently nobody cares because no one has commented. I guess they’re all waiting for the next show by another old has been relic ” or more penis size discussions. Too bad .

  3. Thank you for this show. I lived within KSAN’s coverage area from 1972 to 1978 and listened to many of their shows from The Record Plant. I specifically remember hearing this show at the time. Unfortunately, in all my years, I was never able to make my way to Sausalito to
    see a show in person. I look forward to hearing this show AGAIN.

  4. I am also very happy to see this posting- Bloomfield was great, and it will be interesting to hear him in this format. Thankyou! P.S. I wish more material by Bloomfield’s old band mate Al Kooper would come up!
